Bayou Cleanup Crew Finds Body of Motorcycle Rider Near Downtown

A boat crew cleaning up Buffalo Bayou found, among the usual debris, the body of a dead motorcyclist about 10 a.m. today.

Police think the man, 31, whose name has not been released pending verification, might have been in the water for as long as ten hours, and had driven off eastbound Memorial Drive in the 2400 block. That's near Eleanor Tinsley Park

"The motorcycle struck a tree and then landed in Buffalo Bayou," police say.

The man was driving a red Honda. Police say they believe the accident happened shortly after he left his home at midnight.
